"Voices From The Light"

We discovered Zak Riles when Norfolk & Western (another band he plays the banjo and the guitar with) came over for a hinah session. We were deeply impressed by the two songs he played that night, two tracks haunted by John Fahey's ghost. On this recording, there is still the spectrum of the "American primitive guitar" hero, but also much more singing which should delight those who love Nick Drake, Mark Kozelek, M. Ward, Rivulets, and of course Norfolk & Western!

hinah015 - Peace Harbor "Voices From The Light"
" "Voices From The Light" songs were recorded in the attic of my house in Portland on a borrowed 1/4" tape machine. I recorded these songs live over about one week then added some overdubs of banjo - guitar - vocals. I thought this was a good opportunity to record two of my favorite songs by Elizabeth Cotten and Mississippi John Hurt. It is spring time here and if you listen close you can hear the birds from the willow tree in the background."
